A new Make Up Forever independent boutique has opened its doors in Paramus, NJ at Westfield Garden State Plaza on the second level near Neiman Marcus. The almost thirty-year-old French brand offers anything and everything the beauty maven in you desires. The brand was created in 1984 by artist Dany Sanz when she created body and face liquid foundation for the French Water Ballet. Needless to say, their Aqua line of waterproof make-up not only works (believe me, I tried the eyeliner and heard raving reviews on the lipstick), but also offers any product and color under the sun. No wonder they are known as the make-up candy store!
I got to pay them a visit at their new location last week, before they opened their doors to the public that Friday (7/19). The boutique is stocked with absolutely everything from foundation and eyeliner to body paint, glitter and an eyelash bar where you can find faux-eyelashes in all lengths, colors and sparkles. If you are getting really creative for a night out or special event, need your make-up not to melt, or are dressing up in costume I guarantee you’ll find everything you need here. I mean, they carry fake blood, fake hair, and even a special powder that makes your make-up light up in UV lights. Roy Rodriguez, make-up artist and manager of the store treated me to a purple sparkles cat-eye make-over. He used the water-proof eyeliner, and even though I recommend taking your make-up before going to bed, that day I did not… and I woke up with perfect purple-lined eyes, that’s how good their make-up is.
I had so much fun taking in all the products, colors and sparkles available, and chatting it up while getting glam-ed by Roy. Make sure to stop by and check-out all their offerings. The staff is really knowledgeable so they’ll guide you to the perfect product for you, and even teach you how to use it and apply it. You can also check their website for upcoming make-up classes. Take a peek at their new boutique below, and start planning your next make-up shopping spree. Have you tried Make Up Forever before? Do you have any favorite products or colors?
Having fun with MUA and Manager of Make Up Forever in Paramus, NJ, Roy Rodriguez.
